    Yep - from the position of dog-catcher all the way to the top.

    The same could probably be said for the other 49 states though.

    California has taken it to a high level, but there are surely other states with crappy governments.

    California is Detroit at the State level, a system destroyed by years of letting Progressives run things.

    So, there's one particular question that seems of relevance to me. Are hospital and highway construction suffering? If not, then all that is happening here is that they are borrowing money against their allotments for bingo halls and acupuncture, and using it to pay their bills for education and police.

    And I really don't have a problem with that.

    Actually, no. California is ruined because anyone and everyone can alter the Constitution with a mere majority vote but it takes a super majority to raise a tax.

    Hooray for letting The People run a state into the ground.
